A Poem for Mimi

Updated on December 30, 2011

This poem is for my Mimi. Mimi is my grandma. I love her dearly. She's been there for me since I was a baby, always showing me unconditional love. My life would not be the same without her in it. My husband and I are forever grateful for all of the homemade chicken noodle soup that she makes--but even more--we are thankful for her.

Mimi


Through all the years—

Through laughter and tears—

Through dreams and through fears—

She's been a rock, stable and firm.

A teacher who helps others to learn.

A voice saying, "I'll help you through this next turn."

A heart that gives freely and doesn't make you earn.

Her love is strong.

It has endured for so long.

Her life sings a song:

"You have a place to belong."

Whether giving chili or soup, brownies or bread,

Her acts of kindness, through the fabrics of our lives,

Weave a valuable, irreplaceable, strengthening, thread.


Merry Christmas Mimi!

Love, Jenna
